Hi Subhash, as parents, we need to keep a close watch on what are child has in his school bag, his pockets, his drawers etc but without being intrusive. also, keep talking to his friends and teachers. And somewhere indirectly, inculcate good habits such as returning things if they have been borrowed; replacing other people's things if damaged. all this in the long run will teach him that everything does not belong to him.

Subhash, I think it is very important for the parents to communicate to the child, in clear terms how wrong stealing is. You can tell him this through stories or examples of others. At the same time, also tell him that it is okay not to have everything in the world. children do this because they see something the other child has but not they. So, assure your child that what he has is everything that matters, that he shuld not steal, nor let others steal, and if he does so, how it will harm him.

Hi Subhash ! Well I agree it is indeed a serious matter and the earlier it is dealt with the better .I agree with Nitin. We don't need to be harsh with kids as for them to understand difference between right and wrong might take few more years. You need

Hi Subhash ! Well I agree it is indeed a serious matter and earlier it is dealt with the better .I agree with Nitin. We don't need to be harsh with kids as for them to undeestand difference between right and wrong might take few more years. I need to check child' bag everyday and check for any unusual stuff which does belong to him/her. If u find any such thino do not immediately give yr reaction. when u see child is comfortable ask politely and appreciate for telling the truth rather than scolding. U can explain the child that it is stealing to carry money from home to school without telling parents or take others things without their permission . Repeated reminders everyday and NO everytime for wrong behavior would make thEm understand the implications of their behavior .

Hi subhash! A couple of things the parent may want to know from the teacher and also from fellow parents. What did the teacher spot the child spending money on? Are any of the fellow parents giving money to their child? Also- before a parent reacts or loses her calm with the child - its important that one of the parent has a chat with the child about what happened... as the other related worry at times could be around the child lying. Also do read the blog on "helping your child understand the value of money"
